The personal chat helped me figure out how my SOP should look like. Nistha patiently reviewed all my SOP and LOR drafts with perfection. Most importantly, the SS community is huge, and there was always a senior to help me out with my questions, and interactive webinars were very helpful. I would like to thank Nistha and SS for helping me.
